Since I didn't get to Lajitas until the afternoon I was surprised at how many birds were there. Afternoons are usually not very birdy. I saw my first Double-crested Cormorant for Brewster County, lots of pipits and meadowlarks, and tons of ducks. I'm not good on duck IDs so I don't know if anything special was among them or not.
It was so great seeing a few odonates. Somehow I have to survive until spring. Lajitas will help I hope. Here's a Rambur's Forktail.
And this is probably the best shot I've ever gotten of a Green Heron.
It departed when I tried to get closer.
I have more photos I want to share from today but I'm tired and don't have them all identified yet, so I'll continue tomorrow. Here is the only hummer I saw today at Lajitas but I was there during the worst part of day for hummers. This is a female Anna's Hummingbird.
